Regina Mansfield has been hired as the Main Street manager, Gainesville City Manager Kip Padgett said Tuesday.
"We are very fortunate to have Ms. Mansfield with us. Her previous involvement with downtown revitalization and preservation made her the right candidate for this position," Padgett said.
Mansfield served as the Better Hometown manager for the city of Byron for three years and says she is excited to become part of a larger Main Street program.
"Gainesville already has a successful downtown program. I am looking forward to working with the merchants and the city of Gainesville to increase economic development activity in the downtown commercial district," she said.
